You should be OK with just adding another 8 GB chip.

 

It should work with the one HP installed in your notebook.  No need to buy two.

 

If your notebook is using 90 - 95% memory when gaming, that should give you almost 8 GB more free memory available under load.

Hi:

 

Check your Windows resource monitor and see how much free memory you have with 8 GB installed.

 

If you have 4 GB or more of free memory, adding a second 8 GB memory chip should be sufficient.

 

You can install a compatible single 8 GB memory chip from a different manufacturer if you want.

 

I recommend this brand/model since they guarantee compatibility with your notebook:

 

8 GB:

 

Crucial 8GB DDR4-2666 SODIMM | CT8G4SFRA266 | Crucial DE

 

16 GB:

 

Crucial 16GB DDR4-2666 SODIMM | CT16G4SFRA266 | Crucial DE

 

Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the memory removal and replacement procedure:
